Juliet, Moon of Uranus

Juliet is a Moon that orbits round the planet Uranus. It is also know by other designations, UXI, S/1986 U2. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 557,504,657,112,156,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.3. Its volume is 429365.

Juliet was discovered on 3 January 1986 by Voyager science team.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Uranus is 0.49306 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Equatorial Radius of the object is 47km. The Equatorial Radius is based on the assumption of the Albedo value. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The albedo of the object is 0.07. The Albedo is the amount of radiation that is reflected back into space by the object.

The Escape Velocity of the object is 144 km/h. The Escape Velocity is the speed an object needs to be travelling in order to break free from the objects gravity. The larger an object is, the more velocity (speed) is needed to break free from the object.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 64.4, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Juliet is 294.1 km. The surface area of Juliet is 27,523.37. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.017. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 34198.50 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 64400.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Juliet orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.07 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0007, it is the degree at which Juliet orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
